Matt Wilson has joined Meerkats in the role of associate creative director and Oli Nicholson has been appointed to an intern copywriter role.
Wilson (above right), previously senior copywriter at the Brand Agency, had a big year on the awards front in 2019 with the Hungry Puffs campaign for Foodbank WA.
Says Wilson: “Meerkats has a strong creative pedigree and some really iconic WA brands in their portfolio – it’s a great time to be joining the Kats in a leadership role.”

Says Gavin Bain, chief executive officer, Meerkats: “We’re really excited to bolster our creative team in two key roles. Matt has hit the ground running and fits right in, and Oli is a bright young talent with heaps of potential. It sets us up for an exciting year at Meerkats with an emerging creative leader, and an up and coming talent joining the ranks.”
